Online TimeBanking Software
TimeBanking online software has become an essential tool for TimeBanks. Members can set up and record exchanges with a few simple clicks. TimeBank coordinators can support their TimeBank membership, organize and highlight events, make announcements and provide alerts for the TimeBank community.
Community Weaver 3
We are pleased to share with you the new Community Weaver 3, which we launched in April, 2015. We are very proud of this new version of Community Weaver and are happy to provide it to make timebanking easy and accessible for you. We are grateful to our community of timebankers and technology pros who created it. Community Weaver 3 is designed to adapt to any size screen, and is easy to use on a cellphone. New features include a dashboard for coordinators for a quick-glance at the TimeBank’s ongoing activities. Reports are easily generated, which is useful for fundraising or grant reporting. With Community Weaver 3, smaller TimeBanks or neighborhoods can come under the same umbrella so that the tasks (and real-time costs) of organizing the TimeBank can be shared.
Community Weaver 3 Hosting
TimeBanks USA has developed this software using open-source resources and we host the software for you (and take care of the headaches like security, updates, server maintenance). When starting out, we suggest trying out the software at the Community Weaver 3 demo site. Learn how it works so you can get that piece in place.
How can you support Community Weaver?
If you are a TimeBank funded and/or managed by TimeBank members, we will provide Community Weaver at no charge — but please know that we do expect users to help support Community Weaver 3 as part of our shared mission to spread timebanking. Developing and hosting Community Weaver 3 and providing excellent technical support does not come free. Please contribute what you believe the software is worth to you, your members and your community. We extend that offer to non-profit TimeBanks whose budget is less than $80,000 (this amount may be modified to reflect inflation over time). The support we receive from users of Communty Weaver 3 is an essential part of the funding that makes such high quality software, hosting and technical support possible on an ongoing basis — and we are truly grateful for that support. The full amount of the gift is tax-deductible. To give any amount, please Donate Here
If you are (a) a grant-funded non-profit organization with paid staff and budgets of $80,000 or more – as evidenced by the IRS form 990 for the previous year, (b) a government agency, or (c) a for-profit organization, we will be happy to negotiate a cost with you. We generally operate from a guideline of $2 per member per year (assuming full use.) To discuss a fee that will work for you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
